Bringing Exploration to Life for Learners

At National Geographic, we believe in the power of exploration and wonder to change the world. The heart of our community is our Explorers: cutting-edge scientists and researchers, transformative educators and powerful storytellers. We believe it's at the intersection of exploration and education, where National Geographic can make a profound difference for learners and the educators who reach them. 

Now, as communities around the world are exploring new ways of teaching and learning at home, we invite you to join us for live broadcasts of Explorer Classroom. In our commitment to support educators, students and families during this transition, we are now providing Explorer Classroom every weekday at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Explorer Classroom’s live video events connect students with National Geographic Explorers across all seven continents to bring exploration to life.

Events are free and open to the public. Register for a chance at one of six on-camera spots to ask Explorers your questions face to face!
